20 Easy Mushroom Drawing Ideas

I’ve noticed a growing trend in mushroom art lately, which has inspired me to compile a list of easy mushroom drawings for you to try out in your sketchbook.

As someone who has always been fascinated by mushrooms, I even took a fungus class during my time in university. With their vast variety, I hope to showcase mushrooms in a unique way through this collection.

So, let’s dive into the world of mushrooms and have some fun drawing them! 😊

Drawing Tip:

To start, I recommend creating a preliminary pencil sketch of your drawing. Once you’re satisfied, you can go over it with an ink pen. After the ink dries, erase the initial sketch underneath, and voila! You’ll have your finished drawing!

If you are curious about the art supplies I use, feel free to check out my blog post on the art supplies I use for a comprehensive list.

Let’s begin by drawing some simple mushrooms with delightful patterns on their caps.

For our basic mushroom drawing, we’ll start by sketching the mushroom cap. Next, we’ll move on to drawing the stem. Finally, let’s add some decoration to our mushroom. I personally added circles to mine.
